“Nice Place but not in Winter”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

We booked the Valentines Weekend Special, The weather turned out to be hideous especially the access road Rte 700 was terrible. The weather was not the lodges fault but their care of the roads on the premises was terrible and severely lacking. We left a day early so we wouldn't get snowed in. Our room in the lodge was clean and comfortable but the bathroom was freezing and there was no heat other than what came from the room. Walking on the grounds was bad, very slick and icy. The barn where the Valentines dance was held was cold and the path about 150 yds from the lodge was slippery and could have been cleaned better. Its probably nice in the spring, summer and fall but not in the winter

I had the "Time of my Life" at Mountain Lake Lodge. If you love the movie Dirty Dancing and LOVE the late Patrick Swayze like I did..... you will LOVE this Lodge. Over 1/2 of the movie was filmed here and the actors/actresses stayed in the Lodge while filming in 1986/1987. We were celebrating our 20th Anniversary as well as the Lodge was celebrating the 20th year of the movie and was having a Dirty Dancing weekend special. Although we went in November, it was very nostalgic and brought me right back to when I first watched the movie. Included was full breakfasts, lunches, and dinners along with nightly dances and Ballroom dance lessons... needless to say I was in heaven the entire 3 days and had the "Time of my Life"

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the Patrick Swayze room...it's in the main Lodge (if you're a Fan like me). i...

Booked into Blueberry Cottages for the weekend. Weather took a turn for the worse. Mountain Lake Staff phoned me to express their concern. Moved us into a cottage they were sure would be warm and safe for us. Phoned us later in the evening to make sure we were safe and comfortable. Awesome service.
Mountain Lake Outfitters supplied us with snowshoes and a wonderful guide named Jess. She took us up in the mountains in the snow and cold and taught us to snowshoe. Wonderful experience.
Couldn't ask for a better experience. Thank you Mountain Lake!

This property is still as beautiful as it was in the moving Dirty Dancing. Everything about this resort was beautiful, except the lake is not fully restored yet.
The rooms are gorgeous, beautifully decorated and maintained.
We came with our children and really enjoyed having drinks and family time on the deck (where it was screened in). We ended up watching the sunset from this deck where you could hear the crickets chirping.
The staff was terrific. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast.
You can hike, rent bicycles, or just sit by the gazebo and relax.
This is the place you want to go when you want to get away from it all.

Room Tip: You can either have a room in the lodge or book a cabin on the property. Either would be awesome.

This was our second visit to Mountain Lake Lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay as part of the New Year's Eve Package. The room was great and the dining experience superb. The lodge combines a good mix of old lodge feel with updated amenities. The package price was very reasonable. We are looking forward to doing it again next year.

Spent New Year's Eve at the hotel. Very nice dance that night. But the food was poorly prepared, reheated, not grilled a total loss. I ate four meals there, none were acceptable. Our waitress complained about being sick (cough, cough). The fire alarm at 5 AM was a nice touch, a get out of bed early call. Eventually a guest walked down the hall with the all clear news. The place need serious management.

Room Tip: Beautiful location, come prepared to hike outdoors. Bring your own food.

We live a short drive from the lodge and chose to travel up for a little mountain snow, dinner, and warm cider on 12/14/13. What a way to ring in the holidays! The lodge was decked out in beautiful trees and garland, sounds of crackling wood fires, local beers in the lodge pub, and dinner was first class - presentation, taste, and service! The prices are in the $20-30 range and coffee is locally roasted in Floyd County, VA. Well worth the visit!

Room Tip: Did not stay in room.
